Ever wondered how they build a suspension bridge? Then check out the Pilar 7 Experience. This is one of Lisbon's most popular visitor attractions and allows you to discover the technology employed to construct the city's iconic Ponte 25 Abril. Located beside one of the bridge's supporting structures, the Pilar 7 Experience Centre features an exhibition room, which charts the history behind the impressive structure. You're then taken on a fascinating guided tour of the massive concrete base, the walls of which are stencilled with information panels explaining various stages of the building and engineering process. Afterwards, visitors are invited to take a panoramic elevator up to a vertigo-inducing viewing platform set 80 meters above the ground and parallel to the busy roadway deck. From here the views are simply jaw-dropping.
